The Panama Swimming Club is not able to assume legal responsibility for its members or others.

While we are always keen to share our passion for outdoor swimming, all members must be solely responsible for making their own assessment as to the risks involved in any particular swim.

Swims arranged by members of the Panama Swimming Club are not led or supervised by qualified individuals and no insurance is in place.

The decision to participate in any swim must therefore be taken individually, and swimmers must not rely (in whole or in part) on views or information provided by the Panama Swimming Club and/or its members.

If you are in any doubt about the safety of a swim or your ability to complete it, you should not take part.

Further, to the maximum extent permitted by law:

  1. The Panama Swimming Club;
  2. Each individual acting on behalf of the Panama Swimming Club; and
  3. Any person involved in organising a Panama Swimming Club social swim;

Exclude any liability for personal injury, death or other harm or loss to its members or any other person or organisation as a result of their negligence or other breach of legal duty.
